Getting Started


Welcome to Alvernia Library's guide to research resources in Catholic & Franciscan Heritage Resources.

This guide provides an overview of literature and mission materials available through the Office of Mission Integration and Education and the Dr. Frank A. Franco Library Learning Center at Alvernia University. 

A selected bibliography of print resources listed under tabs labeled books, journals, and media provide a library call number if the item is found in the Franco Library, and/or it will be identified as available in the Mission Office.

Additional tabs are valuable websites that connect faculty, staff and students to major sources of news, information, and research materials that support the Catholic and Franciscan identity of Alvernia University. 

Feel free to contact a librarian with any questions or concerns!
